Simply, we take your privacy very seriously and treat it with integrity.
RoPemusiclessons.com. (“RoPe”) operates ropemusiclessons.com. It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating this website.
Like most website operators, RoPe collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. RoPe’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how RoPe’s visitors use its website. From time to time, RoPe may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
RoPe also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog. RoPe only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to RoPe’s websites choose to interact with RoPe in ways that require RoPe to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that RoPe gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who subscribe at RoPemusiclessons.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with RoPe – by purchasing access to the Easy Ukulele All-in-One product, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, RoPe collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with RoPe. RoPe does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
RoPe may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, RoPe may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. RoPe may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, RoPe does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
RoPe discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on RoPe’s behalf or to provide services available at RoPe’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using RoPe’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. RoPe will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, RoPe discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when RoPe believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of RoPe, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a3 RoPe website and have supplied your email address, RoPe may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with RoPe and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. RoPe takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If RoPe, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that RoPe goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that are transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer of RoPe may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
